Without artefact removal
With the Planmeca ARA™ artefact removal algorithm
The Planmeca ARA™ metal artefact removal algorithm is the outcome of extensive scientific research and a vast amount of clinical patient data. It is a standard feature for all Planmeca CBCT imaging units.
Metal restorations and root fillings can cause streaks and shadows to appear in 3D images. The Planmeca ARA algorithm has been designed to efficiently remove these metal artefacts.
Planmeca ARA is very flexible to use. You can either activate it before imaging or utilise it manually after the exposure. If needed, artifact removal can be performed multiple times at different levels using the original exposure data.
The Planmeca ARA metal artefact removal algorithm only gets rid of unwanted artefacts – without weakening diagnostic value. The result is a crystal-clear 3D image free from shadows or streaks.
Planmeca ARA can be conveniently used together with the Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ imaging protocol to capture artefact-free CBCT images at lower effective patient doses.
